XOLO X1000 with Intel Atom Z2480 launched, priced at INR 19,999

XOLO has announced the launch of X1000 Android smartphone at a press event in Goa minutes ago. This is the third smartphone from the company to come with an Intel chip inside and will join X900 and X500 in the company’s X-series.xolo-x1000-main

According to XOLO, the smartphone has been priced at INR 19,999 and will be available in the last week of March.  Flipkart has already started selling the smartphone, although it will be released in retail market beginning March 20.

As we reported few hours ago, XOLO X1000 features a 4.7-inch 720p curved glass display, 2GHz Intel Atom Z2480 processor, 8MP camera and 1900 mAh battery. The phone runs on outdated Android 4.0 and this is certainly a downside to the phone, when we are seeing so many Jelly Bean powered phones available in the Indian market. XOLO itself has two Jelly Bean smartphones in its portfolio in the form of recently launched Q800 and A1000.

The Intel processor in X1000 is based on Medfield Platform, which is actually a generation old and Intel has already announced its successor Clover Trail+ platform.

Among other features, XOLO X1000 also packs 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, 3G, and 1900 mAh battery.

“Our partnership with Intel continues. With the first XOLO device X900 in April last year, we redefined speed and performance by bringing in the first 1.6GHz Intel HT based smartphone to the world. Earlier this year, with XOLO X500, we bought this high-speed smartphone experience into the sub 10K price segment. Now, with XOLO X1000 and its 2Ghz Intel HT processor, the customers will get to experience an entirely new definition of speed and performance. That, added to the stunning looks of this smartphone, is sure to take the breath away of our ever-growing tribe of XOLO lovers,” Vishal Sehgal, Co-founder & Director, Lava International said.

To remind you, XOLO currently sells seven other Android smartphones in the country.

    Guys,
    While your comments regarding Android version or marketing style can be understood. But can’t comprehend comments about “Local Brand ” pricing. Moto Razr i using same processor is priced at 338 pounds. And considered in par with HTC One X.
    So lets review objectively than blaming “Local Brand”.

    ICS? no thanks.
    20k from local company? no thanks.
    Older processor no better than others available at half the price? noooo thanks.

    bad pricing. 15k should be the maximum price. and one can only laugh at the flipkart comments stating words fastest mobile. this is indeed fast and should match Galaxy S3 or One X but this is from a local brand. lets see how many of those actually buy this mobile. 20k is a huge sum.

    This is like LOL.
    At this price point this hardware is meaningless.
    This is self bad publicity.

  • Shuvendu

    Well if the price comes down by 45% immediately can think of holding the market for few minutes.

  • Rohan

    I’m having trouble finding any advantage of this over XOLO Q800.. Can think of only the resolution.
    But that doesn’t justify the 7.5 k difference..

    Was expecting the clover trail cpu phone this is utter disappointment .
    even 8 k budget phones are running on jelly bean and they launch a phone with ICS so worthless.
